It may be a 20-minute drive to the private sandy beach, but the hotel provides shuttle services daily. So you can soak up the sun without a worry in the world.

Resting along the Athens Riviera, you'll find possibly the best hotel in Greece, if not the world: Four Seasons Astir Palace Hotel. There's not much you won't see here, from three private beaches to the Naskifa family pool.

While outdoor adventures are in full supply, you can also rest easy in a garden bungalow or Arion sea view suite. It should come as no surprise that the children's facilities are also abundant, with non-motorized water sports on the agenda.

Take in the breathtaking views of the Temple of Poseidon to the south and Souniou National Park to the north. Even if you tried, you couldn't find a luxury resort in a better location, with such a wealth of history and nature surrounding it, than Cape Sounio Grecotel.

With all the simple luxuries of modern living, its architecture resembles the ancient ruins surrounding the area. Sailing along the Athens Riviera is a fantastic opportunity, but exploring the majestic family hikes within the nearby national park is a must.

Crete keeps offering perfect family resorts, and the Blue Palace is one of the top options. Don't let its name confuse you; it's not actually blue or a palace. Rather, it gets its name from how the tranquil infinity pools pop against the pink-hued stone walls of its suites. Sounds dreamy, right? 

Get all of that and more with family-specific events, such as the Therino open-air cinema for the perfect bonding experience. 

Why We Love it:

  • Although there are seven restaurants to pick from, they also provide private family dining experiences.
  • Hop aboard a traditional caique and explore the glorious waters of the Maribello Gulf.
